Buying a ticket to enter a place where people want to sell things has always been difficult for me. Commercial auto shows, boat shows andthe like leave me cold.But then several years ago, when I discovered flower and garden shows, I softened.A good show has more to offer than sales pitches -- although thisisn't a bad place to get an overview, compare products and prices.I enjoy the inspiring landscape displays, chatting with plant retailers about what's in and what's out, seeing new products, and meetingrepresentatives of local garden groups and finding out what they aredoing.

THE DAFFODILS are coming up, the trees are thinking very seriously about budding, and my crab grass is becoming quite lusciously green. With the sap rising and the angle of the sun changing noticeably, and shirtsleeve weather an occasional reality instead of a memory, one is reminded that "in the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love."Quiet Waters Park is stealing a jump on those thoughts with its second Bridal Celebration Open House March 23.The open house will provide information on bridal clothes, catering, flowers, horse and buggy or limousine service, music, photography, equipment and local accommodations for wedding parties and guests.

You can tell it's spring.The swallows have returned to Capistrano, the buzzards are back in Hinckley, Ohio, and gardening offers are clogging my mailbox.Just last week, I received an offer to join the Organic Gardening Book Club, an advertisement for bulbs and perennials from an outfit in Michigan, and an offer for books on landscaping and flower selection.Some of the plants shown in these brochures look as if they were created by Dr. Frankenstein.One advertised a tomato-potato plant. For only $7.99, you get a plant that grows tomatoes from its stems and sprouts spuds from its roots.
